Wild Life

Documentary Rated: PG-13 93 min

The latest documentary from the Oscar-winning team who produced Free Solo follows conservationist Kris Tompkins on an epic, decades-spanning love story as wild as the landscapes she dedicated her life to protecting. After falling in love in mid-life, Kris and the outdoorsman and entrepreneur Doug Tompkins left behind the world of the massively successful outdoor brands they’d helped pioneer—Patagonia, The North Face, and Esprit—and turned their attention to a visionary effort to create National Parks throughout Chile and Argentina. Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin’s film chronicles the highs and lows of their journey to effect the largest private land donation in history.

“A rickety helicopter tour of a fascinating marriage; nearly every scene makes you want to stop and explore in more detail.” — Amy Nicholson, The New York Times
